How do I file my application with the Court?

When you have completed all the forms required for your application type and you are ready to file, you should use the Court’s electronic filing platform for general federal law, eLodgment.

First you must register for an eLodgment account which may take up to 24 hours to complete. If your registration request is urgent, contact the Court by using the Live chat service on this page.

Once your registration has been accepted, you will be able to file your application online.

You will need to pay the filing fee to the Court when you file the application. In some circumstances, you may be exempted from paying court fees or a reduced fee may apply. There are different requirements for general exemptions or financial hardship.

If for some reason you cannot file online, you may be able to file your documents by email. To discuss alternate filing options please complete the enquiry form.
